3-D Campus / Life Origins-Meteorite

3-D Campus

It’s the next best thing to actually being there, as USF scientists are creating a virtual map of the Tampa campus. University Beat on WUSF TV tells you how the researchers, working with USF and high school students, use 3-D scanners, GPS and other high-tech tools to build a world that can be viewed by future students, campus police and countless others - and they’re taking these skills beyond the university to also capture images of endangered monuments around the world.

Life Origins-Meteorite

This week’s University Beat introduces you to Matthew Pasek, a USF geology professor whose research on sites around the world has detected evidence that a key element in the origins of life on Earth was carried here on meteorites. Join us on WUSF 89.7 as we shed light on a three and a half billion year old mystery.
